Dancing in the Rain - Review

Idgie Says:
This is a definite angsty love story - no instant affection and love.  There's a dying woman and a young girl who just met her dad involved and that does not lead to easy romance.  

That Peyton is attracted to someone who has a child with her sister, regardless of how tenuous that relationship was, and that Drew's behavior and attitude since losing his career has not been in top form,  doesn't help.  Now they have to come together and help raise a pre-teen.

Not a lighthearted story, but if you want to invest in a story for the emotional ride with all the feels, this is a book for you.

Description

Happily ever afters aren’t just for fairy tales. In this heartfelt novel, a retired athlete must become a father to the daughter he never knew—just as he discovers the power of love with a woman who reignites his passions.

Drew Sellers is drowning in broken dreams and empty beer bottles. Hockey was his world, until a bum knee reduced him from superstar to has-been. Then he learns that, thanks to a one-night-stand back in college, he’s the father of a preteen girl with major issues. Her protective aunt sees right through Drew’s BS, but “Auntie P” is no stereotypical spinster. With her slender curves, toned legs, and luscious lips, she has Drew indulging in fantasies that aren’t exactly family-friendly.

At another point in her life, Peyton Watt would have been all over a cocky alpha male who pushes all her buttons like Drew. Right now, though, she needs to focus on taking care of her niece during her sister’s health crisis, all while holding down a job and keeping her own head above water. Besides, Drew’s clearly no father of the year. He’s unemployed. He drinks too much. And he’s living in the past. But after Peyton gets a glimpse of the genuine man behind his tough-guy fa├žade, she’s hooked—and there’s no going back.
